Team Nigma recently merged with Galaxy Racer to become Nigma Galaxy.
As per their press release yesterday, Team Nigma will be heading the esports division of Galaxy Racer. Nigma Galaxy would be responsible for housing all of the latter’s rosters across all major esports titles, including VALORANT, while looking to “create better opportunities for players in the Middle East and become a globally recognized brand”.
Mohammed Morad, Co-Founder of Team Nigma stated that they are thrilled to announce their merger with Galaxy Racer.
“We are thrilled to announce our merger with Galaxy Racer. Galaxy Racer has a brilliant understanding of the entertainment business and together we share a mutual passion for supporting and nurturing talent within the MENA region. There is also a lot of natural synergy between our brands with Nigma meaning “star” in Arabic. Before this merger, Nigma was a single star. By becoming Nigma Galaxy, we will have a Galaxy full of stars,” he said.
Meanwhile, CEO and Founder of Galaxy Racer Paul Roy commented: “We are excited to announce our merger with Team Nigma to transform our competitive esports division into Nigma Galaxy. Team Nigma’s leadership team carries vast experience as professional players, which we believe will be a great asset to building and supporting all the teams under the Nigma Galaxy banner.”
“Celebrating and nurturing the untapped gaming community around the world is what Galaxy Racer was founded on. With this merger, we believe we will be able to truly unlock this potential and shape the future of esports on a global scale,” he added.
Nigma Galaxy will operate as a standalone entity with its own budget, brand, direction, and identity while retaining the Team Nigma colors. Galaxy Racer will also retain its brand identity and will be able to focus on developing its already-robust content creator structure and additional branches to the business.
As for the VALORANT roster of Galaxy Racer, they have already changed their tricode from GXR to NGX as seen in their respective Twitter accounts.
